On quitting the course after completing 2 years, student will be awarded an Advanced Diploma Certificate. On completing the entire 3 years, student will be awarded a Bachelor’s Degree Certificate.

The course will consist of combination of practice, theory and hands on skills in the RAC (Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning) sector.

Programme Education Objective

To prepare the students for Air Conditioning and Refrigeration system maintenance, technologies and tools sets to work as facility manager, Commissioning manager project manager, service manager, contractor, and entrepreneur in the vocation of Air Conditioning and Refrigeration in multidisiplinary and diverse settings with utmost regard to ethics, human values and social responsibility

Career Opportunities

Through classroom and “hands-on” training, students will gain knowledge and practical skills necessary for installing the refrigeration and air-conditioning devices.

Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) industry will grow very rapidly in coming years.

The Bureau of Labour Statistics projects that by 2022 this field will experience a 21% increase in job growth. The Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) predicted industry currently needs 27,000 new workers each year just to replace those who retire. HVAC techs will be busier than ever before and remain in high demand throughout the next two-three decade. HVAC jobs can never be outsourced and will always be on site, which affords technicians and other professional’s long-term job security.

HVAC industry, which is on a fast track growth trajectory, provides very dynamic and exciting careers with many different job opportunities such as: HVAC Managers, HVAC Engineers, HVAC Installers, HVAC Mechanics, Sales and Marketing representative, Service Technician, Field engineer etc. Leading players in the industry, which offer careers in HVAC are: 1. Daikin, 2. Voltas, 3. Godrej, 4. Blue star, 5. Samsung, 6. Panasonic
